Grievances: Guidance for Employers – Part 4

Employee Grievances: Part 4 Frequently Asked Questions

This episode of the podcast is the final in a mini series focusing on Grievances and how to deal with them.

I cover some of the Frequently Asked Questions about grievance investigations and processes.

In this episode I will cover:

  •  Does the employee who raises a grievance have the right to see witness statements and evidence gathered in the investigation process?
  • What if the grievance is against the owner of a small business?
  • If the grievance regarding bullying is upheld does the employee who raised the grievance have the right to know the outcome of the disciplinary process?
  • Does the employee ‘accused’ in the grievance have the right to know about the grievance against them?
  • Should a disciplinary matter or a grievance be dealt with first?
  • Can the same person investigate and decide the outcome of the grievance?
  • How do you reach a conclusion where two sides tell different story and there is no evidence?

Action Points

  1. Listen to episodes 1-3 of the Mini Series.
  2. Seek advice and expert support if you find yourself in a difficult or tricky situation.
